Thumbs up Making Audio CD's for the G6 that show the name of the song

This might seem like a weird question but I have been using Roxio RecordNow Premier to burn CD's to play in my car. The only problem is the program is crap and crashes on most XP setups because it requires that you have some high end graphics card, which I don't understand since it's only for burning but this is what I found out from Roxio's forums themselves. Apparently, I'm not the only one using this crap program. I wanted to know if you guys (or gals) knew a program that lets you burn CD's and it actually show you the name of the song that's playing in the G6 Stereo? Only programs you have tested and know works please Thanks in advance.

Hey NBX, is this the newest version or an older version. I tried to stay away from the newer version since it comes with everything and the kitchen sink but I might have to give it a try as I never have known Nero to crash a PC like the new Roxio stuff.

yeah NBX, that did the trick. Thanks for the info man. That helps me out alot. It's also alot easier to me to customize the title of each song that will be displayed.

I use iTunes to burn all my audio cds. If you select the option in the burning preferences it will show the artist, album, song name for all of the tracks.

But Itunes is the worse POS app in the world. It's about as bad as Windows Media Player. I just got a new 80 GB Black Ipod and I use Winamp to do anything to my ipod.

I've got a really sweet windows explorer based program for the iPod called Anapod Explorer. Takes up hardly any resources and allows you to send and recieve data to and from your iPod. PM for a copy..

I just stumbled into this forum and have a question about burning CD's. Does the software you are using allow the title and artist to be displayed on a audio cd, not a MP3 cd, and does the G6 radio then display that information?

Thanks
Steve

Hey Steve,

Yes, when you burn a audio CD using this software it will display the name of Album and Artist of the CD when you insert the CD and then it will display the name of the song for each track. The best thing to do is do like I do since the G6 Radio only shows the name of the song when you burn CD-TEXT, once you add the mp3 files to Nero, add the name of the artist to the name of the song also. This way you will see the Artist - Name of the Song.

Hope that helps

Thanks. I saw someone mentioned iTunes can do this also. If I can get it to work in iTunes, that avoids having to purchase additional software. I have a older version of Roxio, but I do not have it currently loaded, and don't like thier stuff anyway. If nero is the way to go, then I will go ahead and purchase it.
Thanks again.
Steve
